Travel Forums Africa and The Middle East Overland: Cairo to Cape Town in 2011

Hi you all!

I'm new on this forum and I already love it!

I'm looking for a travel buddy/buddies to join me on an overland trip from Cairo to Cape town (via Sudan, Ethiopia, Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Rwanda, Mozambique and finally South Africa). I'm a South African and therefore know Africa fairly well. Currently I'm in China and I've got lots of travelling experience - but still I want to let my dream come true: Africa on public transport from North to South. I was thinking of doing it alone, but it is much more fun with a buddie or 3.

Budget: Small
Fun: Huge

Anyone interested? Drop me a line!

i'm with the same plans - by land from Ethiopia down to SA and ending in Namibia.
I might be with a friend some of the trip in the beginning, but mostly its alone.
I hope to hit Addis late January/early Feb. What are your dates?

I'm very interested. Have been searching the net for awhile now, but most packages seemed too expensive... plus, I don't want to be a part of a pre-organized tour.

I'm from Egypt, and planning to visit some friends in South Africa, but thought it would be more fun to go overland than by air.

Have been thinking to do it alone too, but I don't know anything about Africa and am a woman.. so I was a little intimidated.

I've been dreaming about that beautiful town in Mozambique called Vilanculos, would love to visit it along the way.

I need to get to south Africa in February, if not in April.

What is the estimated budget for this?
